The Spragues, a retired couple from Pueblo, Colo., thought they won the lottery when they saw their winning numbers in the Sunday paper.

It turns out the paper posted the wrong numbers.

For about an hour, the Spragues thought they were instant millionaires. Then, they checked the internet and saw that the paper printed the numbers wrong.

Needless to say, the Spragues were extremely disappointed.

Still, the couple says it was an honest mistake.

The paper's managing editor felt bad about putting the couple through this emotional roller coaster.
